Quake Rubble

africa is coming north
pushing up against
southern europe

so there's tension
which is sometimes
released in earthquakes
and volcanoes

and things fall down.

well-built about a 
thousand years ago
and even more

walls have fallen

 so sheltering against
a wall might not be

the best idea
because it could
fall on you
without warning

we should choose
our refuges carefully

    1. Thank you arlenecorwin!

      If you had access to Google+, as well, you would probably now have over 2000 of my poems. Google+ was shut down about a year ago.

      I think I have digital copies of all my poetry files I published there. All in all, I have written and shared too many poems to ever do a collected poems book. Maybe a selection.
